The goal of this program is to improve hemodynamic optimization of the perioperative patient. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Explain how protocolized care improves outcomes for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and sepsis.
2. Evaluate the benefits of crystalloid vs colloid solutions in resuscitation of patients with ARDS and sepsis.
3. Employ functional hemodynamic monitoring to assess volume responsiveness.
4. Define "triple low" and recognize its effects on patient outcomes.
5. Reduce the incidence of postoperative delirium through monitoring of bispectral index (BIS) scores.
The original programs were presented by Michael R. Pinsky, MD, CM, Dr hc, MCCM, Professor of Critical Care Medicine, Bioengineering, Anesthesiology, Cardiovascular Diseases, and Clinical & Translational Sciences, and Vice Chair for Academic Affairs, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA.
